Michael Jordan made an interesting remark in an interview with NBC, saying that Steph Curry isn't a Hall of Famer. As you'd expect, the former six-time champion has the entire NBA community talking about that particular comment.

It's still unknown what the tone of Jordan's message was during his interview. While there are many people that believe he was taking a shot at the superstar guard of the Warriors, others believe Jordan meant Curry isn't actually a Hall of Famer yet.

Former players decided to chime in on this situation, including Magic Johnson. He thinks Jordan had to make those remarks to avoid getting fined for tampering.

The basketball world waited patiently for Curry to respond to Jordan. After a few days, he finally opened up about it.

Curry spoke to Full Size Run's Matt Welty in an interview for Sole Collector. He decided to take the high road when talking about Jordan's comments.

"I think I’m good, but then I’m never complacent. I know I have more to prove to myself. When you hear a guy like that who’s the greatest of all time, it’s kind of funny. Since we’ve been on this stage, we’ve heard a lot of retired guys chiming in on this generation of basketball player and evaluating talent and saying their generation was better and all that. It’s a great conversation for the fans to get in on. I know I’m in good shape for that, but I still have a lot to prove to myself."

The reality is Curry will make the Hall of Fame when he decides to retire from the game of basketball.

Curry has changed the game because of his absurd range from beyond the arc, while also winning three championships and two MVP trophies.

We'll see if Jordan respond to Curry's remarks.
